This article is part of a series on the different features offered as part of our Nerds Hosting packages.  The feature covered in this article is available in both our Basic and Business hosting packages.  The information covered in this blog is considered accurate at the time of publication.  You can contact our team for more information by visiting
All websites start with a domain name, and most domain names are included for free as part of your Nerds On Site hosting package.  Domain extensions such as .com, .ca, .net, .us, .biz and .org are included for free as part of your hosting account, and it is with domain names that Nerds On Site stands apart from all our competition. The traditional hosting provider allows you to point a domain name registered with another company at their hosting services, but Nerds On Site does this a bit differently.
At Nerds On Site we believe that you want a seamless, reliable experience, and if you register a domain with company A and point it to company B for your actual web hosting, who will you blame when something goes wrong?  Nerds On Site only offers hosting services to those clients that also have their domain name with us, which provides you as the client a single point of contact for when something goes wrong.  Accordingly, if you register a domain name with our team, you will only be able to park it or host it with Nerds On Site.
This arrangement may seems strange and restrictive at first glance to those well versed in the hosting industry, but it forms the base for many of the fantastic features that we are then allowed to offer to our clients.  By having the domain name and website with the same company, you get unrivalled integration and support across your entire hosting package!  Most hosting providers do not want to deal with your domain name because there is virtually no markup in domain names, so we made them free as part of your hosting package!  Each hosting package gets one free domain name.
